Starstruck

Remember my tale about the best thing I have ever found?

The star is now hung ~ in all its ginormous glory ~ on the wall in my space at Found on Fremont. And in case it didn't make enough of a statement, I draped tiny white lights on it. Customers have asked if it's for sale...I don't think I want to let it go, but if I did, what price should I slap on it?
Please advise!

I would simply put"make an offer" and you will know if its good enough!

Oooo! That is pretty wonderful! Pricing is the hardest thing in the world for me. If you don't want to sell it yet, and I don't blame you, think of some ridiculously high price that you think nobody would possibly pay, and enough that you might be comforted a little with the money if someone did.

I don't know - pricing is the hardest part for me! I just found my first vintage dress form, and I figure if I put it in my booth at all, it's going to have a pretty hefty tag on it - to discourage people, you know? Because I really DON'T want to part with it. So, I can relate - and if you do put a price tag on your star, please tell us what it is!

Make sure your price it high enough that if someone actually bought it the $ figure would be large enough to lessen the pain of losing this FANTASTIC find!!Enjoy.

If you get lots of interets put a tender auction on it.If it was mine it would be staying with me LOVE it.

Amanda @ Tall Glass of Water said...

Haha @ Emily!!

I agree with Nelly about the auction thing. Ooooor... just keep it!

Pam, what did you decide? Maybe $150? Not sure what your market would bear.

Lisa said...

The price of a trip to Paris for a week :)

Amber Von Felts said...

It looks great! I dunno if I could sell it if it were me...the story behind how you got it is just priceless!

$150 was the first price I thought of too. I could easily see something like that priced that high, and it would still make you quite a bit of profit. So somewhere between $150 and $200.

Maria (Magia Mia) said...

Oooh, I agree with Lisa! :) I would keep it, but you know how well it would do at Christmastime? You could get a pretty penny for it from someone who just has to have it for their giant schmancy home. I think even a retailer would want that. You could maybe get a few hundred for it....though make an offer is a good idea too!

I don't think I could part with that lovely... the price would have to be something I could live with... since I'd be without my beauty... sigh..... I couldn't part with it... sorry I'm no help!!! Have a lovely day enjoying your star!!! {{hugs}} Michelle
